Arun Vijai Mathavan's showcase at Senate House during Chennai Photo Biennale 2019. What we do with our dead, how we regard them, is dependent on the specific conditions into which we are born—belief, religion, language, place, sect, caste, gender and, in recent times, science. In India, those classified as ‘untouchables’ or ‘Dalits’ have been forced to handle the dead for centuries. The manner in which they are compelled to do this in modern, state-run hospitals has gone unnoticed and undocumented. Arun's project proposes to shine a light on an unknown, shrouded world.
